Yesterday marked Epiphany, or Three Kings Day. In many Gulf coast regions, particularly the New Orleans area, it marks the start of Carnival Season. Now, anyone who knows me knows that Mardi Gras is my most favorite holiday ever. And I mean ever! This is my Christmas, birthday, and everything else rolled into one. I cannot explain, for the life of me, why I love Mardi Gras so much. But, I do.
How else to commemorate the start of Carnival than with some Louis Armstrong? Yes, I am a jazz fan. Especially New Orleans Jazz.
In 1949, Louis Armstrong was the King of the Zulus.
